A few volunteer activities led by the city and district heads had occurred to raise social awareness of cleanliness and safety in public areas.
On April 20, 2022, Mr. Paisan Chophaka, Chief of Sam Roi Yot District, headed the operation of the volunteer project that runs on a monthly basis in front of Sam Roi Yot District Office, Silaloy Subdistrict, Sam Roi Yot District, Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. This time, he was joined by the head of the general administration office, volunteers who protect the territory of Sam Roi Yot District, Kamnans, village headmen of Salalai sub-district, the people volunteering in the royal spirit of Salalai Sub-district, and Ms. Kanarin Kidkhuan, Director of the Center for Non-Formal and Informal Education, Sam Roi Yot District (NICE), together with other teachers and students to clean up the landscape around the Sam Roi Yot District Office and at the 4th Phor Pu Sam Roi Yot Shrine, which is a popular spot for the general public to pay homage to and pray regularly. The reason for the activity is to create awareness of sacrifice, love, and unity, and to build a good relationship between government agencies and people in the area.
On April 21, 2022, Mr. Sathien Charoenruen, Governor of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, along with Mr. Preeda Sukjai, Chief of Pranburi District, led the royal volunteer group of Wang Phong Subdistrict to develop road safety campaigns such as improving traffic signs, painting a crosswalk in front of Ban Wang Phong School to reduce the accident rate to zero. According to the resolution of the Road Safety Administration Center Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, the road safety campaign activities have been set up under the name “Campaign to Reduce Accidents Around the Crossings” and are continuously run on a monthly basis, every 21st of the month, to enforce the traffic law strictly. Besides the repainted crosswalks that have been highlighted, an awareness for drivers to slow down when they reach a community area, an educational institution, a medical facility, or an area with congestion is being spread out to prevent potential losses.
There are other active volunteer projects ongoing in Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. The volunteer project for the care of the elderly with dependency was initiated to reduce the government’s financial burdens on medical care for the elderly and to provide jobs to those who are affected by the pandemic. District Health Volunteer Group (Or Sor Mor in Thai) is another one that drives the well-being of people in a district. A few years ago, Or Sor Mor Hua Hin created its application to update work real-time and facilitate a quicker connection between the agency and people in case of health concerns and support.
